Sharing About Major Fish Stocks & Commercial Fisheries
Webinar Date: January 28, 2022, 9-11 am Alaska Time
World Wildlife Fund and the Alaska Ocean Observing System are pleased to host the next in a series of conversations between Russian and Alaskan colleagues studying and observing fisheries in the Bering Sea, Chukchi Sea, and Arctic Ocean.
As climate change continues to transform habitats and food webs in this region, the goal will be to stimulate broader discussions about the need for more collaboration and identify opportunities to strengthen research and exchange of observations across the border.
We welcome you to join this webinar to learn, listen, ask questions, and share your observations. Simultaneous English-Russian interpretation will be provided.
